America purports to be a nation of laws not men . A nation where no individual is above the law. However, in the community of nations, American foreign policy behaviour reflects the image of a nation that perceives itself to be above the law of nations. With the evolution of the international legal regime and also the creation of the International Criminal Court, US foreign policy behaviour has been called into question as never before. The US is not a signatory to the Rome Treaty that created the International Criminal Court and has subsequently rejected both the Rome Treaty and the ICC. This volume provides an examination of the attitudes, policies and constitutional issues behind this rejection.
